Final week of April disruptions transcript


Works across the transport network are in their final week and here’s what you need to know.

This week, buses replace trains on the Cranbourne, Pakenahm and Frankston lines from Caulfield to the CBD.

Buses drop off at the Arts Centre, Federation Square and Parliament.

There’s also track and signalling works on the Mernda line each night from Monday to Wednesday, while Metro Tunnel works ramp up this week on the Sandringham line.

On the regional network, coaches are replacing trains between Warrnambool and Geelong on Monday and then for the entire Warrnambool and Geelong lines for the rest of the week.

On the Gippsland line, coaches continue to replace trains until next Tuesday.

As the autumn construction blitz continues on the rail lines, there’ll be more people on the road.   

The Monash Freeway, Dandenong Road, Nepean Highway and Batman Avenue will be busier than normal, so plan ahead to avoid delays.

The "blue line" is currently in operation on Phillip Island Road for the supercars.

This effectively doubles the capacity of the road meaning a quicker run home for everyone, but be sure to obey all the signage.

We’re also putting a hold on road works for popular holiday routes starting this Thursday afternoon.

Thanks for your patience while we get on with these important works.
